Grants & Funding

Dr Fei is one of the chief investigators of a $4.1 million ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centres grant funded by the Australian Research Council and industry partners. The research centre endeavours to transform the Australian horticultural industry through cutting-edge projects in partnership with key stakeholders of the industry. Dr Fei is responsible for one of the 10 projects to be conducted by the Centre. The project aims to improve banana quality through supply chain management.Dr Fei has successfully completed two Teaching Development Grants ($24,790 & $7,759). The two projects investigated how lecture capture of different forms enabled by Echo360 software may impact on learning and teaching. The results indicate that the availability of lecture capture provides great flexibility for student learning especially those who have significant commitment to their employment and that lecture capture allows students to review lectures whenever they want to, a benefit that is very well received by non-native English speaking students. The findings of the research provide great confidence to those who are currently using the technology and those who are considering using it.

Developing optimal approaches for the implementation of S-Mode in METs (2018 - 2019)$79,145
Description
The prevailing differences in design, function, and interface among the same type of navigation devices and equipment on bridge pose significant challenges to seafarers and pilots alike since they have to familiarise themselves with all the devices and equipment within very limited time when they board on a different ship. In emergent situations, such differences may lead to wrong decisions or actions causing serious maritime incidents. Due to its significance to maritime safety, the IMO has chosen the development of S-Mode as one of its top six priorities for e-Navigation and called the wide maritime industry to contribute to the development of guidelines for S-Mode by 2019. The S-Mode concept will also address the growing challenge for maritime education and training institutions (METs) of having to decide which systems to use for student training. IAMU has an important role to play in developing the guidelines for, and shaping, the S-Mode so that maritime education and training institutions are better prepared to cater for the educational and training needs of our future seafarers.The objectives of this project is to:1. Identify the challenges that METs may face in providing appropriate education and training based on S-Mode;2. Investigate, from the perspective of MET, the features that S-Mode should have for future-proofed solutions; and3. Develop optimal approaches in MET for the implementation of S-Mode.The above three objectives are aligned with IAMUs desired goals in capacity building at maritime education and training institutions (MET). The project will contribute to the aims of IAMU through developing optimal approaches to the implementation of S-Mode in METs.

ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Innovative Horticultural Products: Adding value to horticulture value (2014 - 2017)$2,511,605
Description
Training Centre for Innovative Horticultural Products: Adding value to horticulture value chains from producer to consumer. This project will produce "industry-relevant" researchers and lead to more convenient and longer lasting fresh and fresh-like fruits and vegetables. The project will involve growers, food processors and a major retailer to increase industry productivity, expand markets for Australian foods, and increase choices of healthy products for consumers. This Centre will train a pool of researchers focussed on needs and opportunities in the Australian food industry through projects and formal training with active collaboration from food growers, processors and retailers. This training model and its graduates will enhance the capacity of Australia's fresh produce industry to innovate to meet consumer needs and develop opportunities in local and international markets, aiding Australia's food security and improving the industry's competitiveness.

Investigating the transformative role of Echo360 on learning and teaching (2013)$24,790
Description
This project investigates the transformative role of Echo360 on learning and teaching through: a) examining the impacts of the technology on student learning behaviours including learning approaches, class attendance, and the use of Echo360 generated-materials; b) investigating the relationship between class attendance, the use of Echo360-generated materials, and student performance; and c) evaluating the impacts of Echo360 on teaching efficiency and identifying effective practices in using the technology to enhance flexible and online/distance delivery. Participants of the project not only include lecturers of different disciplines, but also an education developer and a learning service coordinator. Given the wide use of Echo360 in Australian universities and limited research on the impacts of the technology on learning and teaching, there is a great opportunity for the project to be extended.
